What do you think is the deal with rebsgoddess? I know you like her, but I don't understand how one can be so into columbine, yet, defend a bully. I really like you alot, your blog is amazing and everything about you is lovely and graceful but I'm just kinda confused. Thank you for all the time and passion you dedicate on this blog💝
Thank you very much for the kind words and the compliments. They’re much appreciated. =)
I don’t want to get in the middle of that shitton of drama that’s been making the rounds here lately in any way, to be honest with you, and so I’ll keep this reply very brief. The last thing I want to do is offend anybody or get dragged into back-and-forth arguments, so the following is probably all I’ll say on the subject in this public setting.
Rebsgoddess and I get along all right and have occasional conversations about Columbine and some other things when we feel like it. We’re on friendly terms at the moment, though we also disagree at times and have had arguments in the past. She will likely be the first to attest that I call her out on her shit in private whenever the situation calls for it and that I don’t tend to budge on my observations/opinions in that regard. She knows exactly how I feel and think about things, just as she knows that I will not get involved beyond offering her my honest opinions and advice. I will not be the one to call her (or anyone else) out in public, as I find that only leads to more issues and doesn’t help anybody.
I don’t condone bullying. I never have, I never will, and I will confront people about it if necessary. I believe that we can achieve more by being kind to people than we ever can being rude to them. The grace with which I’ve run this blog over the years is the same grace I extend to people in private, though it’s not without its sharp edges. It’s natural for me to be a voice of reason more than anything else, which is probably reflected in how I have chosen to confront any type of drama inside of our community. There’s a difference between building up and breaking down. I prefer to do the former. I will not engage in the latter.
